Mine is due, just one hour left! I had no sleep for the last two nights, so excited! I have the Turnigy nanotechs 2200 35-70c ready and im sure they will be a great fit.

Sure that we can expect many visionare's this summer i would love to change the paint scheme on mine to make it different
Perhaps just changing the blue parts in to black?

I am sooo adicted to this planes & they get better& better all the time, running out of space thanks HH

Did you fly with higher rates in 3D mode or are there still 70% D/R ?

Did anybody check the Turnigy 2200mAh packs ? How do you feel with it ?
I soldered my ESC yesterday and now I have XT60- the advice to remove the ESC out of the fuse was a good tip-otherwise it would be a hard challenge to solder into the fuse.
Will also mod my other clevis at rudder and aile with steel pins next time..weather is bad and therefore I will spend my time for recommended mods.
That whole video I was at 100% rates and in 3d mode.

I love all the posts on this forum that start out with, "I made the mistake of stopping by the hobby shop today". $1 per post and we could have a helluva party. I think the VisionAire is increasing that number.

I did learn an important lesson the other day. The VisionAire can trick you into thinking it's not as windy as it really is. The AS3X kinda "hides" the wind. I flew my VA and it was a great flight. So I got my P51 out and immediately ground-looped it, breaking the prop.

Looking forward to the vids Dale! Rolling harriers just take some practice. If you've got a sim start there. Once you get the timing down it will click...

Maiden report

Like others, I decided to stop by the hobby shop "just to see" a VA. An hour later, I went back and bought it Maiden with minor wind and one word stands out: SMOOTH Some pattern guys were watching and that's the one word they used - and they know about smooth flying planes.

- Rolling circles are super smooth. Requires more rudder than some planes.
- High-alpha KE is better than I thought but requires a lot of rudder. I highly recommend using the inner hole on the horn. If you fly with the wings exactly 90*, it stays there very nicely. If you don't, it rolls out.
- Blenders are very nice
- Inverted flat spins are the tightest and flattest of any plane I have - even better than my 3DHS Extra and Slicks. But watch out for the exit. I'm not sure what happened, but I lost a lot of altitude on exit...
- Couldn't get KE spin to work, but I haven't strengthened the elevator servo arms yet as suggested.
- Waterfalls are super easy - almost no rudder is needed to correct for gyroscopic effects.
- Harriers are easy with no wing rock unless you get out of the sweet spot angle.
- Hovers. Well, this isn't my strength but it is definitely easier than most planes. I needed lots of up elevator as it wants to fall forward, even though my battery is all the way back. Anyone else seeing this? Or do hovers need to be slanted backwards a bit?
- Rolling harriers are good, though require more rudder and elevator than I'm used to.
- The best feature of this plane has to be the landings. Super easy to do a beautiful 3 point landing. I found that using the throttle to land it like I do my 89" gas powered 3DHS Slick worked best. My main flying field is notorious for odd wind currents that mess up landings - but the VisionnAire didn't even notice them

I only got two flights as my other batteries have Deans connectors. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the plane. Two thumbs up!! I'm going to play with moving the CG back, strengthening the elevator & rudder servo arms, using some higher C batteries, and trying in the wind.

Cant wait to fly the Great White again, probably escape from work for a bit tomorrow. I also put an Orangrx Flight Stabilizer in my 3dhs 330c epp and had very good results. I'm thinking flight assist in the next size up from the micro 3d planes is a win win and will put it in future planes.
Dont like it, flip a switch and she's all yours again, in the mean time enjoy the ride!

Looks like the tail is too short. I'm no expert but that might be the cause. Just not enough rudder authority

Well, ParkZone doesn't hold sloppy fit and crappy finish as one of our brand values! As a refresher:

ParkZone =
Park flyers & smaller
No gluing, no painting, no hassles
Intermediate flying skills required
Some measure of durability

E-flite =
No limit on size
Some gluing may be required, ARF allowed
Advanced piloting skills may be requried
Optimized for performance, not durability

In addition, E-flite is the brand for open-stock electric accessories like quality servos, motors, ESCs, etc. Radio equipment that's open-stock quality (including really good servos) will be Spektrum.

[QUOTE=Dave Eichstedt;24042581]Well, ParkZone doesn't hold sloppy fit and crappy finish as one of our brand values! As a refresher:

didn't mean any offense Dave. Just usually thought of eflight as the more premium brand. And fresh in mind is my two edge 540qq's. Fit and finish of this one is like a precision machine compared to the Edge. Absolutely love the Edge as a flying machine, just can't get enough of flying it, but one of mine looked like someone beat it up with a hammer and parts didn't fit right on either one. But this thing went together like it had all parts precision milled - like most all of my Parkzone planes have I might add. I'm still an HH fan through and through, the only problem I have had of recent history is that I have to drive 100 miles each way to find them and as I have a basement full of them it's way too far to have to drive for parts.
